In a nutshell
Visit Rhodes, but go outside the high season
Koskinou is a very beautiful village just a few miles from Rodos Town. In Koskinou you can see traditional houses with beautiful courtyards unique to this island. The village also contains a beautiful church and is close to some nice beaches and eateries. This is a nice...
Kallithea and Tassos Beach
Kallithea is a nice small town to visit in the northeastern part of Rodos Island. Nearby are several small beaches to choose from. I chose to visit Tassos Beach. Tassos Beach appears very rocky, dry, and sandy, and may make you feel like you're on another planet. Depending...
Ladiko Bay, or Anthony Quinn Bay, is a beautiful place for swimming. There's usually other people there, but it's not jam-packed with tourists, so you still feel like you are far away from it all. Many people like diving and snorkeling here also.
Petaloudes, Valley of the Butterflies
Petaloudes is a beautiful "park", where you can observe hundreds of moths, butterflies, and other insects in their natural habitat. The walking trails are very beautiful and are a nice place to go during a hot day. Petaloudes is located in the mountains, so the drive there...
Epta Piges is a beautiful, quiet place just west of Tsampika. There is a very nice taverna situated in the forest, where you can observe different types of birds, peacocks, and butterflies. You can walk some nice nature trails and see the seven springs. In one area along the...
Tsampika is a very nice "area" in eastern Rodos. There is a large, beautiful sandy beach, where you can cool off after sightseeing on a hot day. If you drive further south you will see Moni Tsampika, or Tsampika Monastery, off the side of the road. It is a very quiet place...
Prasonisi is a very small town at the very tip of Rhodes. If you are in Rhodes and you like surfing, adventure sports, etc., then this is the place for you. The ocean currents here are very strong, so I would not swim here, but it is good for surfing. It is a beautiful place...
Monolithos Castle and Fourni Beach
Monolithos Castle is located on top of a mountain and offers great views of the sea. To reach it you must follow a short trail in the woods and climb up a stairway. At the top of the mountain, there is the castle as well as a beautiful whitewashed church. You can take a lot...
Siana is a very small village in the mountains of western Rhodes. The drive there through the mountains is very nice. The main reason for visiting Siana village is not necessarily for the sights, but for the local products...in this village they produce souma, honey, and...
Ancient Kamiros is an amazing place. You can see an example of an old Greek seaside town. It's not a very big place, so you won't need to spend a lot of time there, but you will want to wander around and see the houses, baths, etc. Do climb to the top of the hill because...
Ancient Ialyssos and Moni Filerimou
These two places make a very good side trip from Rodos Town. They are very close to the capital and the drive is very scenic. Moni Filerimou is located high on a mountain, so during the drive and upon arrival there are very good views of the ocean and town below. Moni...
Visit the Old Town
We spent a day here - pottering around - looking at all the old historical buildings. There really is so much to see. The day we were here there was hardly anyone else around - we virtually had the Old Town to ourselves.
A stroll aroung the castle.
Around the middle of the 5th century BC, Rhodes became a member of the Athenian League and in the final years of that century, a man named Dorieus, an Olympic victor, persuaded the Rhodians to build a large modern city on the Island and populate it with citizens of the three...

Casino Rodos: Good luck!
This seems to be the only casino in the whole island - but I might be wrong. Anyway, the building is large and surrounded with a very nice garden, full of tempting green shade on sunny days.I'm not really into gambling, although I can understand those who like that sort of...
Renting a Car...
In Rhodes, probably the best (and most comfortable) way to get around is renting a car. It's really easy to navigate there (especially in the countryside), and you can drive around the entire island in 1 day. It's nice to drive along the ocean and leisurely stop whenever you...

Mythos - Greek Beer
There was a time when it seemed like the only beer you could drink in Greece was the Dutch Amstel - so much so that on one memorable holiday a friend of ours would leave a trail of Amstel empies all round our apartment complex and we would be able to find him by following...
Rhodes Island Packing List...
Many beaches in Rhodes are rocky (not sandy), so if you have sensitive feet, bring swim shoes.
Strong sunscreen and mosquito repellent are very necessary in Rhodes. Even if you don't burn easily, you should still wear really strong sunscreen. You can bring mosquito spray...
